SLIO© IO Controllers

SLIO©

Performance and Application

SLIO© is designed for large decentralised automation tasks in the manufacturing and process industries. SLIO expands key solutions and is integrated with the help of the device master files into existing fieldbus infrastructure. The new backplane bus concept built into the interface modules in SLIO© enable very short response times for signal processing.

Functions

A variety of signal modules are available for the connection of sensors and actuators for acquiring digital and analog signals to and from the process. For positioning, path measurement, counting tasks and other functions further modules are continuously being developed.

Communication

SLIO© includes interface modules (fieldbus slave modules) with different fieldbus protocols by which the system, manufacturer-independent, can be integrated into most automation concepts.

SLIO© can be combined and applied with each of the established VIPA PLC control systems 100V, 200V, 300S, 500S. It's one of the most effective and modern distributed I/O systems available on the market. It combines high functionality with a clever mechanic concept in an extremely compact design.


Compact and Space-Saving Design

  • Conceptual separation of electronic and installation layer
  • Space-saving, thin design 
  • Innovative staircase-shaped wiring layer 
  • Simple "Two components set-up"

Clever Labeling and Diagnostic Concept

  • Clear allocation and readability of channel states
  • Simple, time-saving installation and maintenance by means of the connector pin assignment provided on the module
  • Clear, definite labeling of channels
  • Reference designator label remains on the exchange of a module

Installation and Maintainability

  • "Permanent Wiring" enables the exchange of modules without the disconnection of the wiring  
  • Intelligent slide and plug mechanism for simple handling
  • The electronics are protected against reverse polarity
  • Encoding of the electronic modules prevents them from incorrect fitting

High performance

  • Quick backplane bus concept of 48MBit/s
  • With ETS modules it is possible to switch exactly up to +-1us independent of fieldbus.


Clamp Modules

SLIO©: Clamp Modules

Clamp modules are passive modules for 2- or 3-wire installations, whose contacts are electrically connected internally through the modules intergrated backplane bus. The purpose of the module is to provide multiple power supply connections, three variants are available giving 8 connections for +24V DC or 8 connections for 0V DC or 4 connections of each. Through the application of the clamp modules, distributed power can be realised easily and it enables the connection of active supplied sensors like proximity switchs. Wiring is via a timesaving and secure cage clamp system. The clamp modules are fixed on the mounting surface by means of a 35mm DIN rail.
